Floral wedding inspiration in Italy
You know it’s a good week when two floral crowns crop up on the 100lc blog. First, in yesterday’s gorg lilac shoot full of French-floral-goodness, and now in these images by photog Elisabetta Marzetti. We’re thinking we may need to craft a few ourselves this weekend… you know, just ‘cause. Let’s head to Italy this morning, shall we?
Elisabetta says, We laid a typical Italian smorgasbords buffet, surrounded by rosemary, sage and other aromatics, on a 19th century bread-bin. A variety of cheeses and jams, salami, sausages, walnuts, olive oil, wine, fresh vegetables and various types of bread.
As dessert we prepared whipped cream sponge cakes, decorated with flowers and fruits. Every true Italian wedding would also provide little favors and a small pouch of confetti for the guests. We chose little pads embroidered with the bridegrooms’ initials, and organized a special nook for this. The wedding bands were laid on a little handmade lace cushion.
The location: A 12th century ex-monastery in historic Umbria, in central Italy. Looks like quite the place to hang out for the day, we think.
They used an antique door with pewter vases, crystal cloches, and romantic flatware that contrasted beautifully with the rustic wood. And the florals: David Austin roses, pale pink peonies, white and coral peonies, viburnum, scilla, scabiosa, buttercup
Some seriously good-looking florals.
So how much are flights to Italy again?!
